John Patrick Rogers, Career Townhome Community Asshole, Faces Serious Charges
And you thought your neighbor was a dick: John Patrick Rogers has a court date Thursday tied to what's apparently been a career of terrorizing other residents of his Huntington Beach townhome community. Rogers pleaded not guilty at arraignment in Westminster Monday to five felony counts of stalking and electronic eavesdropping and multiple misdemeanor counts for violating court orders. I'm sure the Huntington Beach Gables Homeowners' Association would be willing to pick up his moving costs by now.

The Huntington Beach Police Department reports it has been called to deal with--and even arrest--the 48-year-old in the past, as he has repeatedly violated restraining orders and trespassing laws.
Taking a break from exposing Klansmen past, promoting his 116th book and happily signing my lavish paychecks, The Mexican wrote in 2010 about Huntington Beach Gables neighbors by then having taken out 28 restraining orders against Rogers. Among his sins back then: taunting residents with his pit bull, putting up defamatory signs in common areas, shining lights in bedroom windows in the middle of the night, jumping suddenly in front of cars, crank calling neighbors and posting videos of neighborhood kiddies on YouTube.
Hell, screw the move, it's surprising no one took this turkey out by now. Rogers is being held in lieu of $1 million bail, which should actually make us feel sorry for his fellow inmates.
